Product Description

Avo Uvezian was a well known Jazz pianist with a passion for cigars. It is uniquely fitting then that we choose one of his "Avo Uvezian" Brand cigar boxes to create an affordable Cigar Box Guitar with a great voice.


This is the Fourth in our series of "Pure & Simple" cigar box guitars, featuring the distinctive "neck on top" building style. The vision behind this cigar box guitar was to build a great-sounding, fun-to-play instrument that we could sell at an affordable price. With a built in disc piezo pickup and a fancy Avo Uvezian Syncro Nicaragua cigar box, this model of the Pure & Simple is a bit fancier than the kit version.

What sets this line of instruments apart are the innovative "flying bridges", which transfer the string vibrations around the neck and down to the box lid. In our testing of these instruments, the use of the flying bridge almost doubled the volume, compared to placing the bridge on the neck! The result is a great-sounding, fun-to-play and highly affordable cigar box guitar that we are proud to offer under the C. B. Gitty brand name!

Check out A. J. Gaither taking a previous model of this guitar for a spin in the video demo below!

 

Built in C. B. Gitty's workshop, located in the Seacoast region of New Hampshire, USA, these are great cigar box instruments - if you have been looking for a great-sounding, well-made cigar box guitar that you can tune up and start playing right out of the box, then look no further!

Check out the great features and specifcations of these guitars below. Please note that these are handmade instruments, and that the appearance of individual instruments may vary somehat due to differences in wood grains, etc. There may also be minor differences in hardware, but overall these are identical cigar box guitars. The instrument shown in the photographs is representative of this model and is not the exact guitar you will receive.
